So I have been at the end of this game for over a week now.
I found it fun, and everything was hard, but not unbeatable. I took down Ridley my second time through, I am reasonably sure I got most all of the missile expansions and Energy tanks, and I am ready to go into battle with Metroid Prime.

My first time through I got pasted. This was expected! I knoew it was going to take a time going through to learn its attacks, and weaknesses.

The second time through (I dunno, are we still warning for SPOILERS here?) I fared much better- I thought I had beat it with less than one energy tank left, only to have to fight the "Inner" Metroid Prime. I figure out about the pool of Phazon rather quick, and the whole visor shift, but still I die.

I have fought this thing like 10 times, and I am still getting slaughtered. After it starts calling the hunter metroids, I am doomed. I can't fight them and the boss at the same time, and I only ever have 4 energy tanks (well, 3 and some change) going into this fight, so I can't ever afford the hits. It is getting damned frustrating.

Any thoughts?

Two hints.

1. During the first part of the fight when he goes into the ice form use a charged up (Hold A + Hit Y) Ice Buster. One shot will take him out of that form.

2. When you're fighting the second form you can take out the metroids he summons with a Powerbomb. Even better is that they usually drop more Powerbombs for you to use on the next wave.

Exactly. The powerbomb really becomes useful in this battle and clears the arena of Metroids.

I beat that sucker with less than 10 energy points left! Hoo! I was sweating all over the controller.

You know, I tried the powerbomb thing before you posted it, and it helped, but I guess it just came down to patience. All of Metroid Prime's attacks (in both forms) were highly predictable, and with some patience I finally got to the final form with more than half of my energy left. Then it came down to focusing not on Charging towards the Phazon puddle (as soon as I would see it, I would rush the puddle, and either lose it or lose the Prime...), rather, methodically locating the Metroid, moving towards the puddle THEM locking on... I finished with over four energy tanks left, which was nice...
I think I am going to wait until I get done with Zelda before I go back to try out the Hard mode...



Not that restraint when posting in a "public" forum isn't a good thing...
